If anyone signed my public key it would be nice to have links to the signers.

This could be cool - something like “followers” by the list is generated from people that signed the key. Of course that’d work only for WKD as keys.openpgp.org strips third party signatures.

Why does keys.openpgp.org strip signatures? Doesn’t that defeat the point of getting my key signed?

Why does keys.openpgp.org strip signatures?

Because of this: https://dkg.fifthhorseman.net/blog/openpgp-certificate-flooding.html

Doesn’t that defeat the point of getting my key signed?

keys.openpgp.org made a trade-off: most people don’t care about getting their key signed and stripping the signatures prevents spamming keys. Due to this kind of attacks the SKS pool is basically dead right now.

If you want the signatures use WKD or keyserver.ubuntu.com (that still preserves signatures).
